All first-year students must register for and attend ONE Orientation Session.  Registration links for each orientation will be live in January.

You are eligible to register for Orientation once your enrollment deposit has been received by the Admissions Office (due no later than May 1).

In order to ensure we can work in small groups, there is a cap on the number of students permitted to attend any one session. Sessions fill up quickly, so we urge you to register as soon as possible to ensure a spot in the session of your choice.

For the orientation sessions in June, students are housed on-campus in one of the residence halls.  Parent housing on-campus is not available.  A list of area hotels can be found by clicking here.

Please be sure to register only once. The deadline for Orientation registration is Friday, May 25, 2018.
